I've added that to my signature now

i noticed!... i think that, maybe, we both are the same situation (or something like that)... i thought in the same lyric this morning... but i deciced to be more optimistic, so i chose the "unplayed piano" lyrics (as i posted before)...

My top 10 would be all about the same thing (they're not in any order)...

#10 - "Cheers darlin, here's to you and you're lover boy"

#9 - " I wanna be the only one that you know - i wanna live, don't wanna die, i wanna grow old with you. Just wanna be the only one that you know, cos i adore you. I do yeah"

#8 - "Prepare myself for a war. And I don't know what i'm doing this for.
Trying to let it all go; But how can I when you still don't know?"

#7 - "why'd ya sing Hallelujah, If it means nothing to you. Why'd you sing with me at all?"

#6 - "Tell me what the **** must i be to you" (Im not actually sure if thats what he says, but seeing as i can relate to it so well, i've always been to afraid to check and find its something different :P)

#5 - "do you really feel alive without me? If so be free. If not leave him for me"

#4 - "What's the point of this song? Or even singing? You've already gone, why am I clinging?"

#3 - "**** you, and all we've been through. leave it, it's nothing to you"

#2 - "And the day it ends, and there's no need for me"

#1 - "What i am to you, you do not need"




As you can see, i'm quite lighthearted and take more joy from the happier tracks of his

Why does this lyric always occur to me on the way to work:

I don't wanna be the brave one in a senseless fight

So i wanted to quote something from wooden horse.. but then i realized i can't not post some of it so i'm posting chunks :P

"Don't ask me what I think of you
I spill my mind
Don't try and ask me what I am
I am mine
So don't ask me what I think of you
'Til I change my mind
You don't understand a thing I do
That brings stain to my eye"

"So don't ask me what I think of you
'Cause I'm not your kind
Write down all those little things I do wrong
That brings a stain to my eye"

This is soooo hard! um, it would probably be

"i get the feeling you're bored with me, not through habbit or frequency, did your mother have you easily? and if theres someplace else, you'd rather be, then go"

just reminds me of a breakup, i guess most of his songs do but this line especially

when it comes to my romantic life:
"Why'd you sing hallelujah, if it means nothin' to ya? Why'd ya sing with me at all..."

and regarding my life in general:

"When you think you've sinned,
do you fall upon your knees?
Do you sit within your picture,
Do you still forget the breeze?"

overall id say this lyric sums me up ridiculously well :P;

and im always hanging on
and im always closing doors
and im always saying no
no, when I really really want it all

and right now i just cant get these out of my head(& my signature), pretty much sum up what im feeling this now;

If you push me I'll fall,
If you pull me I'll drown,
If you're gonna be nailing me down,
I won't rise again

and this one;

...but I was lonelily looking for someone to hold
in a way I lost all I believed in
and I never found myself so low

The song Sleep, Don't Weep probably sums things up for me right now, esp the part about doing something for yourself.

welcome heffaface I agree, Cross-Eyed Bear is great!

How about a bunch of lyrics? Usually it's Insane, Prague, and now that I've heard it, though it's not Damien's lyrics, The Power Of Orange Knickers.

And lately it's these...

So turn and walk away
I've overspoken
Said all that I can say
I know that I can kneel
And I could cry
And I know that I could show you how I died
But what good would it do?
Give the world another fool

This would not have happened if I hadn't missed my plane.
I would've been there when they told you I'm the rat within the grain.
Within this big misunderstanding now, I'm being misunderstood.

Well I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me.
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea.
I only wanted to be wonderful, and wonderful is true.
In truth, I only really wanted to be wanted by you.

And im always hanging on,
And im always closing doors,
And im always saying no,
No, when I really really want it all,
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you.

Still a little bit of your song in my ear
Still a little bit of your words I long to hear

Well, Its not a Damien lyric, but it sums up my world rather decently nowadays:

"You have suffered enough and warred with yourself its time that you won"

Three cheers for the early-coming winter semi-depression!

Default Insane

Am I weak, if I leave it as it stands?
I've submerged, and I've surfaced with the blame,
I guess I'm no good,
I guess I'm insane

This lyric sums up a lot of my thoughts. I like to think of this whole song as a struggle I constantly find myself in. Should I stand up and fight for a cause? Or am I weak if I leave it as it stands? I find that when I am drunk I always stand up for the causes, and typically regret it in the morning and feel like maybe I am no good and I am insane. I guess it just means I am opinionated? This lyric means a lot to me and I will never forget when I heard this song live at Columbus. What a treat!!
